Leonardo’s position has allowed him to travel the world and see first-hand the many problems our generation is facing, and work with Italians living abroad. That is why he has decided to run with the MAIE , because it is a non-affiliated movement.

Infact,in the end of 2017 Leonardo is the new Vice Cordinator of MAIE in the USA[9]

The MAIE Party (Associative Movement Italians  Abroad) is a fresh, new political movement, rather than a party.

They are breaking with the existing, ineffective political system that has blistered the political scene with corruption and never ending chaos.

They believe in the future of Italy and uniting Italians living abroad. Their agenda is modest, moderate and focused on the needs of Italians living abroad.

Being an independent movement, will allow their and the MAIE group to effectively take on the interest of Italians and Italian-Americans living abroad.
